ARLINGTON, Texas — Andy Dalton threw for a touchdown and ran for two more, including the go-ahead score in the third quarter, as sixth-ranked TCU downed No.24 Oregon State 30-21 on Saturday night at Cowboys Stadium.
Dalton went 17-for-27 with 175 yards and two interceptions and had 15 carries for 64 yards for the Horned Frogs, who went 12-0 in the regular season last year but lost to Boise State in the Fiesta Bowl. Dalton threw three interceptions in that game after throwing only five in the regular season.
The victory was the 30th of Dalton's career, moving him into first all-time at TCU, surpassing legend Sammy Baugh.
"I didn't let those (interceptions) affect me," Dalton said. "I knew I had to come back and play well."
